12 Billion Suns? BILLION with a 'B'? 

:head explodes....again:

Wow . . . amazing discovery.
Astronomers struggle to explain how a gigantic black hole could have appeared less than a billion years after the big bang.

This could get interesting.

The place +Brett B and I work is a #union shop. A majority of staff that makes up that union is information technology. For the record, neither he  nor I are members.

Here's my take...I think folks should have the right to opt out of paying union dues and being a member which at least for my teachers union has always been a possibility and requires no new laws to do. The union protects your rights anyway.

This Right to Work crap is just another example of spinning the name of legislation so it sounds good to "common sense" folks who don't look any deeper than the headline. (https://www.nsfwcorp.com/dispatch/right-to-work/) It's been around a while.

Or it's tailored to people who have a perception of unions as horribly corrupt miserable institutions that are strangling the country while ignoring the good unions do in terms of protecting the rights of workers against the greed and corruption that drives much of the way capitalism and its buying of your government.

My dad was in the machinist union. I heard all the tales of corruption and vice and problems there through the years so I saw it's downsides but underneath it all there was the message that the corruption of these guys is better than the screw job management is working up for you. The devil you know and all that.

Is there corruption in the union? Yup. Always has been in any human social institution. Do they sometimes in their zeal of protecting the rights of everyone end up protecting slackers that should get booted? yes...but only in the sense of ensuring due process for those people. Are unions lobbying the government, sure, but they are the one of the few lobbyists who are primarily backed by the common person who trusts them to protect basic worker rights.

The problem is that right now the control of the legislature means this is a done deal and the protests, letter writing, and other efforts will do little to nothing because the legislature doesn't want to be held accountable to the voice of the people. Walker said "he was not interested in it, it was a distraction, blah blah blah" initially because he knew darn well that his puppets already had a bill drafted by ALEC designed to fit the particular structure and concerns for our state, and had already changed the rules of proposing and opposing bills (and even commenting on them at public hearings) in such a way as to avoid the outrage and outcry that Act 10 generated when they tried to sneak that one past. He could distance himself from it for his presidential run and then look like a moderate and reasonable guy when he signs it because its the will of the people of his state.

Since the game is already rigged to be won by the legislature and governor, the people this effects have only one option left short term to do much about it and that's bring services to a standstill with a strike.

Sad to say it but we blew our load on Act 10 and they waited us out, whittled us down, worked on changing the rules for the next attack and now we got little left to fight this. People are tired, demoralized, overworked, financially stressed and so we just roll over again with the next kneecap shot from our governor.

Going to UW Badger hockey game with 6 others tonight including my sister. It's her birthday. Just wish they weren't playing like crap. Should still be a good time. 5 of the 8 of us are from Wisconsin. The rest are from Chi-town area. Hope they wore red and know how to do the time warp.

I agree Jason. Perhaps I was expecting more of a Radio Head vibe? Trent tends to mix his stuff so the vocals lead with electronica stuff right behind.

(With that said for Nirvana / Foo Fighters I find drums to be perfect)

Introduction
Quick list of my interests
  • Roleplaying/tabletop gaming
  • Technology - open source, linux, ruby, rails
  • Motorcycles
  • Tiny houses
  • Podcasts/audio books
  • People/recruiting
Personal

I'm a proud pen, paper, & dice role-playing gamer. While my group defaults to the rpg de jour, I'm the one that explores other titles & systems - Savage Worlds, d20, d100Lite, Star Wars, Dungeon Crawl Classics, D&D, Dungeonworld, Basic RP System, GURPS, Gumshoe and more. 

If you're a Wisconsin tabletop gamer, consider joining the Grumbling Dwarf gaming community: https://plus.google.com/+Grumblingdwarf

= Podcaster

Recently I've teamed up with Brett B to co-host the Gaming & BS podcast. We talk about tabletop RPG's and general geekery.

= Open Road

I've owned 4 motorcycles. Currently riding a 99 BMW RT1100. Just can't get enough of the open road. If you're in Wisconsin and want to connect with other motorcyclists consider joining Cheesehead Cruisers motorcycle community: https://plus.google.com/communities/115923035579031562467

= Living Tiny


The Tiny House Movement interests me too. I have yet to make the leap to downsizing that much, but has given me some insight and appreciation for the way of living.

= Love

I'm married to a beautiful and intelligent woman of Russian descent, and own 4 cats. :sneeze: 


Business

Aside from being a soldier for 5+ years, I've worked in customer service, owned a retail computer company, done IT staffing & corporate recruiting, and been an information security professional. As of March 2015 I am back in corporate recruiting addressing policy, process, metrics, efficiency and strategy.

= Podcaster & Advisor

Aside from my day job, I have started my own professional venture. I have experience in recruiting and staffing. I help job seekers, recruiting professionals and hiring managers navigate the world of talent acquisition. I have a podcast show that provides some insight: Talent Jockey

Google+

My thought is that people are multifaceted though we may find each other via a common interest. This is why I make a lot of public posts. I also comment, re-share and +1 more than creating my own posts.

If I don't reciprocate the circle it's usually because your profile
  • does not have any posts I can view to determine your interest(s)
  • lacks information or is incomplete
  • posts are all about your blog
  • is about pimping a product, over and over
  • you're under age
